Back in November, T-Mobile announced a new service for its mobile customers called Binge On, in which video streams from certain websites don’t count against customers’ data caps.
TL,DR: These new plans are being billed as innovative and democratising, but they are exactly the opposite. They will undermine innovation and expression while reverting is to the hell that is a top-down content structure (think cable tv and it’s innumerable flaws)
The deal sounds great: Stream unlimited music without any data charges. The offer from T-Mobile includes popular services such as Spotify, iTunes, and Pandora. These apps will no longer count against your data plan, the company announced recently, no matter how much you stream across its 4G LTE network.
